This spacious, non-smoking, five-bedroom house started as a chicken coop over 150 years ago! Some of the original wood remains around the fireplace, but today it's a spacious, comfortable home perfect for large families, reunions or groups of friends. It's a five-minute walk from Echo Lake, where a two-person kayak is docked for your private use.
The house sleeps 14 (including two sofabeds). Relax in the Adirondack chairs on the front porch on lazy summer days, or gather in the hot tub on the back deck that overlooks state forest land listen to the babbling brook. Kids love to play in the creek, hike in the back woods (hundreds of acres with a series of waterfalls and gorges), play volleyball or horseshoes (adult and kids sets), bocce or croquet, ride the tire swing, kick a ball around the expansive lawn, and catch snakes and salamanders. Cross the street to the Black River and catch a few fish, or walk to Echo lake for swimming and kayaking.
I just wanted to let you know my family had a wonderful week at the Little Brook House. There was room for all of us. We enjoyed the Brook but all the rain we have had this Spring and Summer has made it a raging brook!! The man at the Tyson Village Store said it’s usually a calm stream at this time of year!We had one full day and night of torrential rains and an afternoon and night. We got to sit out and play in the yard with our grandchildren.We used your list of 20+ favorite things to do also. We had stayed in the area the previous 2 years and had already done some but found quite a few new suggestions. We actually saw a moose at the crossing!We will probably head back to the Echo Lake area next year and hope your home is available for us.
We're a family of nature lovers -- skiing in the winter; boating, running and biking in the summer!
We love its rich history -- and the feeling of getting away from it all combined with the community feel of being located in the tiny village of Tyson, at the northern tip of Ludlow, with the convenience of Tom's Village Store just across the street! Drop in and tell Tom Lisa says 'Hi!'
The creek out back! The day hike from the house up Little Brook to Tiny Pond -- look for the moose that resides there! The Country Store across the street and its friendly South African owner, Tom Village, who is always so friendly to people who stay at Little Brook house.
In central Vermont, 2 1/2 hours from Boston and just four from NYC, there is a place where the mountains are the greenest of green and a string of pristine lakes is the bluest of blue. The fish are always biting in the summer; feathery flakes fall on red-gold leaves in October; and flowers burst into a jumble of audacious color in May. The only thing that beats taking a kayak out on a misty summer morning is screaming down a ski slope after a fresh snowfall. In winter the snow is deep and fluffy from December well into April -- perfect for skiing! With 8 ski areas within 40 miles, you have plenty to choose from.
